In the continuing pursuit for relevant and up-to-date technology blog posts, I’ve decided to review a videogame from 2011. I, like may others, did not buy Battlefield 3 at launch due to the EA Origin service which is required to run it. This was by no means a zealous boycott of any sort, merely that an unwanted feature tipped the scales in a game I was only moderately interested in to begin with.
However, 2 whole years after origin launched, EA seems to have gotten the hang of making its products attractive to its customers. With its price now down to a permanent £14.99, and even offering the Close Quarters DLC for free during E3 2013, I finally felt motivated to buy the game and check out this ‘Call of duty for multi-cellular organisms’.
I was impressed. Briefly.
